Prompt pick up from cruise ship and transported to small dock area to get on fast boat tot the islands. We were pre warned about bird strikes so most had windcheater coats on. Luckily no hits recorded, the islands were covered in birds a most spectacular sight, but not smell. Sea lions in abundance but few penguins. A lunch break was followed by a trip to the desert, with views from the edge to the beach area. Great trip good communication with the company. Would have been easier if you could pay by credit card.
